De Waal defines, “Religion is the shared reverence for the supernatural, sacred, or spiritual as well as the symbols, rituals, and worship that are associated with it.”
I was born in a city where Hindus and Muslims were living almost in equal numbers. Christians and Buddhists were in a minority. I have had close friends in both communities since childhood. In my interaction with friends in other communities, I noticed, that both communities have such people. Those who feed young minds with resentment against one another. They give convincing logic to believe them without a question.
Hindus consider Muslims unholy…
There is a thin margin between truth and lies. It is simply a game of transformation of sentences — from positive to negative and vice versa. Lies are kissable to all, high-low, rich-poor, weak-strong, ugly-fair, public- government. It is prejudiced to none like a professional harlot.
It seems to be a naked lie that lies were untouchables in the remote past. There are invented history based on preferential lies to suit the contemporary needs or fear of a kick on the ass of the historian or the wish of a whimsical sovereign ruler. Homer’s Troy, Continent Atlantis, the origin of…
When I was in High School, one day, I was bluffing my elder cousin showing myself as a studious scholar. I was carelessly playing with the pages of an English Grammar and Composition Book written by some incompetent author. Who plagiarized the list of idioms and proverbs from J.C. Nesfield. By chance, I saw a saying, “Don’t forsake your old friends.” As I read, I was scared. Because till then, some of my friends of the diaper and underwear era had been lost unconsciously. I was worried about how to reconnect my link with those friends.
I asked mom to…
The success of modern democracy lies in creating an illusion among the masses of a country that it is people’s rule. Democracy today is the government of shrewd professional politicians, by the robot voters hardly more than half of the total genuine voters, for those who hold black money or an ability to instigate mobs blessed with no brain.
Democracy empowers renowned self-seeking opportunistic ruling politicians to hoard enough money, resources and unduly obliged people to come back to power.
No doubt, masses in complicated segments in a democracy enjoy unbridled freedom to ventilate their dissatisfaction and anger against the…
Star-studded sky, intermittently twinkling, moonless dark light shrouded with yawning mysteries, silence pregnant with unprecedented possibilities. A rocky, vibrant land far and wide seems to have been abandoned, no habitation since time unknown.
A gorgeous lake adorns with its crystal clear water gives an authentic certification for not having been mated with humans. The virginity of the surroundings allures the youth seeking adventurous trekking.
Gleaming rays of milky light coming through the threshold of a distant cave being reflected on the lake surface. The grace and grandeur of the majestic mountain range around the lake, stamping the sublimity of its ethereal architect. Inside the cave, the infinite supreme emerging through an enlightened super-conscious human form.

There has ever been a controversy between saying and doing, preaching and following, vision and reality.
Whatever we expect from others, we never do ourselves. Our statement varies from place to place and person to person. On the same issue, what we say within our family’s four walls isn’t the same as what we speak in society.
If you meet a person in an elite society having sober manners and noble thoughts, never assume you will find them the same in their personal life.
Why does a man need to hide behind a delusive covering? Perhaps he is so weak that he can’t see, hear and speak the truth.
Let us ponder over here an incredible insight of my dear learned friend George J. Ziogas in this story:
Big or small matters not, to my friend
On the track or off the track
Buddy is bound to succeed.
Jokes mitigate life sufferings.
Aspirations lead to action.
Simplicity is an ornament of a gentleman.
Perseverance makes possible anything.
Ego has no might to impress my friend.
Resilience was an outstanding asset of those whom we now know the Great.
An acrostic is a poem (or other form of writing) in which the first letter (or syllable, or word) of each line (or paragraph, or other recurring feature in the text) spells out a word, message or the alphabet. The…
Louis ceased his eyelids batting and squinted at his wristwatch.
He was counting seconds turning into minutes. Every second that moved forward gave him a sweet-sour flashback of his twenty-one-year married life. He browsed the room and paused his gaze at Julia’s portrait. She was looking pretty in her bridal gown.
How could he not explore her hidden secrets? Indeed it is insane to believe one’s ability to master others. From midnight of seventh December, they would be strangers again after living twenty-seven years into each other’s deepest corners.
Julia met with Louis first time in a Science Seminar in New York. After a year’s friendship followed by five years of live-in relationship qualified them as a married couple.
